I remember one family holiday in the Lake District (dad had an F-Reg Peugeot 405 to date this) we spent ages driving round so that he could get a mobile signal strong enough for a reasonably clear voice signal to provide support back to engineering HQ. In those days it was an analogue carphone with the base wired into the dash and the handset (green LED backlit buttons) on a curly cord. He had the 1.9 (same engine as the Peugeot 205 GTi) which I was quite keen to get my hands on of course, but the company car insurance brought in new T&C's on the policy just weeks before I passed my driving test!
In 1999 as a very junior network guy I flew to Dublin with two much more senior management colleagues as part of a project meeting to a prominent client which was an Irish bank. I was a bit nervous for various reasons, but the anticipated upsides were free flights, a decent 4* hotel and a night out in Dublin which sounded great.
It transpired that we were staying in the suburb of Ballsbridge and my more senior colleagues only really wanted to stray as far as the local Italian restaurant and go to bed early. All I saw of Dublin was a view from the taxi window.
